SE = Sweden
Looks like it's out in Norway and Finland as well.

If you loved the original Hero Academy (who didn't???) then you'll love this.
It's pretty much better in every way. I'll give more feedback when I can sink more time into it.

Is this region locked as I've downloaded it with a spare SE account I've setup but it won't download additional content on launch, just an error message. Have redownloaded twice but same error.
Thanks

No it's not region locked, maybe just maintenance?

I've been looking for this thread been playing since the weekend or so now and unlocked all 3 armies. Really not liking this as much as the original seems like more of a mix between hearthstone and the original but nearly as much as a cash grab as hearthstone and spending money will clearly help you win more in general.

I also dislike the change from async actually as the battles feel completely unrewarding as I couldn't care less about my rank, you should get gold for winning.

The battles felt more tactical in the first game to me and more fair. I also hate the the free chests are on a timer at certain times of day....I work nights so pretty much miss them all which doesn't seem fair.

Still can't download extra data, says check internet connection, which is fine as shown by this post.
After reading ste86uk's post however I'm not sure I'm gonna bother.

You should still give it a shot it's still decent but definitely more monetised for how the market is now compared to when the original released. It still is fun but not as good in my opinion, I've still beat players that had far better units than me just through skill but sometimes it's just so hard to overcome.
